Unsuccessful 2014 General Elections political parties, the suspended People’s Democratic Party and One Fiji Party, were in limbo in view of the next polls but One Fiji Party is looking at making a comeback.

One Fiji Party leader Filimoni Vosarogo said the party needed to process submitting all documentation required under the Decree after the party was suspended by Supervisor of Elections Mohammed Saneem.

“It contains all the requirements that is required of us to submit,” Mr Vosarogo said.

“We have followed the procedures in preparing the requirements.”

Asked whether the party was still going to contest the 2018 general elections, Mr Vosarogo said they were going to contest the elections again and looking forward to it.

Both parties were suspended on February 20 after failing to submit declarations of assets, liabilities and funds of office holders at the end of last year as stipulated in the Political Parties decree.

Both suspended parties had failed to adhere to these requirements on December 31, 2015 and this resulted in them being suspended.

Suspended PDP general secretary Aman Ravindra Singh said they would remain suspended “for now”.

Asked whether the party would file its declarations Mr Singh they were undecided on the future of the party.

“We are actually enjoying our suspension and have not really decided what we will do,” Mr Singh said.

“We shall see after a while what our next step is.”
